3. General Principles

3.1 What data do we collect from you and from whom do we receive this data?

Primarily, we process personal data that you transmit to us or that we collect during the operation of our website. Under certain circumstances, we may also receive personal data about you from third parties. These may include the following categories:

3.2 Under what conditions do we process your data?

We treat your data confidentially and according to the purposes defined in this privacy policy. We ensure transparent and proportionate processing. If we are exceptionally unable to adhere to these principles, data processing may still be lawful if there is a justification. Justifiable reasons may include:
  • Your consent;
  • The execution of a contract or pre-contractual measures;
  • Our legitimate interests, provided your interests do not prevail.

3.3 How can you revoke your consent?

If you have given us consent to process your personal data for certain purposes, we process your data within the scope of this consent, as long as we have no other legal ground. You can revoke your consent at any time by sending an email to the address mentioned in the imprint. Processing that has already taken place is not affected by this.

3.4 In which cases can we disclose your data to third parties?

a. Principle

We may need to use third-party services or those of affiliated companies and entrust them with processing your data (so-called processors). Categories of recipients include:
  • Accounting, trust, and audit companies;
  • Consulting companies (legal advice, taxes, etc.);
  • IT service providers (web hosting, support, cloud services, website design, etc.);
  • Payment service providers;
  • Providers of tracking, conversion, and advertising services.
We ensure that these third parties and our affiliated companies comply with data protection requirements and treat your personal data confidentially. Under certain circumstances, we may also be required to disclose your personal data to authorities.

b. Visiting our Social Media Channels

We may have embedded links to our social media channels on our website. This is typically indicated by corresponding icons. If you click on the icons, you will be redirected to our social media channels. The social media providers will then know that you have accessed their platform from our website. The social media providers may use the collected data for their own purposes. We note that we do not receive any information about the content of the transmitted data or their use by the operators.

c. Transfer Abroad

In the context of processing orders, your personal data may be transferred to companies abroad. These companies are obliged to data protection to the same extent as we are. The transfer can take place worldwide. If the level of data protection does not correspond to that of Switzerland, we will conduct a prior risk assessment and ensure contractually that the same protection as in Switzerland is guaranteed (e.g., by using the new standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission or other legally prescribed measures). If our risk assessment is negative, we will take additional technical measures to protect your data. You can access the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission at the following link:

3.5 How long do we store your data?

We store personal data only as long as necessary to fulfill the various purposes for which the data was collected. Data that we store during your visit to our website are retained for twelve months. An exception applies to analysis and tracking data, which can be stored for a longer period. Contract data is stored for longer as we are legally obliged to do so. In particular, we must retain business communication, concluded contracts, and booking receipts for up to 10 years. As far as we no longer need such data to perform the services, the data is locked, and we use it only for accounting and tax purposes.

3.6 How do we protect your data?

We will keep your data secure and take all reasonable measures to protect your data from loss, access, misuse, or changes. Our contractors and employees who have access to your data are obliged to comply with data protection regulations. In some cases, it may be necessary for us to pass on your requests to companies affiliated with us. Also in these cases, your data is treated confidentially. Within our website, we use the SSL procedure (Secure Socket Layer) in conjunction with the highest encryption level supported by your browser.

We may restrict or refuse the provision of information or data release if this contradicts our legal obligations, legitimate own or public interests, or the interests of a third party. The processing of your request is subject to the legal processing period of 30 days. However, this period may be extended due to high volumes of requests, legal or technical reasons, or because we require further details from you. You will be informed about the extension of the deadline in a timely manner, at least in text form.

b. Deletion and Correction

You have the right to request the deletion or correction of your data at any time. We may reject the request if legal regulations oblige us to longer or unchanged storage, or if a permission fact opposes your request.

4.2 Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”), on our website. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” text files that are stored on your computer and allow for an analysis of your use of the website.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is typically transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

4.3 Google Fonts API

On our website, we use the Google Fonts API, a service of Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”), to integrate fonts. When you call up our website, your browser establishes a connection to Google’s servers to download and correctly display the fonts.

This connection may transmit data, in particular your IP address and information about the browser you are using, to Google and store it on Google’s servers. These servers may be located in the USA or other countries.

If you wish to prevent the transmission of data as part of the Google Fonts API, you can block access to the domain in your browser settings. Please note that in this case, our website may not display correctly.

4.4 WordPress

Our website is based on the WordPress platform, a content management system developed by Automattic Inc. (60 29th Street #343, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA). WordPress allows us to create, manage, and publish content.

When using our website, which is based on WordPress, various data, including your IP address, date and time of access, as well as information about the browser you are using, can be collected and stored. These data are primarily used for administrative purposes and to ensure smooth operation of the website.

Some WordPress features, such as comments or contact forms, may collect additional personal data when you use them.

4.5 Google reCaptcha

To protect against unwanted requests via the internet form on our website, we use the reCAPTCHA service of Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). The query serves to distinguish whether the entry is made by a human or misused by automated, mechanical processing. In the context of the query, information, such as your IP address or your behavior when filling out the form, may be transmitted to Google.

For this purpose, your input is transmitted to Google and further processed there. By using reCAPTCHA, you agree that the recognition you provide contributes to the digitization of old works. In the case of activation of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCAPTCHA will not be merged with other Google data.
